St. George Village recently held its first “Cyber Café” on a Sunday afternoon in the Bistro, and what a resounding success it was! More than 25 residents showed up, armed with their tablets, laptops, smartphones and e-readers, to learn more about how to operate these technology devices from a group of 10 volunteers.
The volunteers from BlueHair Technology Group, along with students from Blessed Trinity High School, provided hands-on assistance, answering questions about basic operating functions of the devices and helping residents learn how they can get the most out of their technology, including:
• How to connect to the Internet and find information
• Setting up an email account, sending and receiving messages,
attaching and downloading files
• Playing games such as Words With Friends
• Creating a Facebook page
• Downloading and using applications such as Skype and Pandora
Due to the success of this initial event and the continued interest it generated, the Cyber Café will become a regularly scheduled event.
St. George Village, a senior living life care community, is committed to creating an environment that encourages residents to continue exploring, learning and challenging themselves, regardless of age.
